Player Assessments

Updated Player Assessment Times for January 20

Our Player Agents and Fields Coordinator have been in close contact and watching the weather forecast as our final day of Player Assessments approaches (yay! That means drafts start soon!). As of right now, we should have sun on Saturday.  BUT that does not mean the fields will be dry and fit for play, especially since it just rained. Volunteers are going to need some time on Saturday morning to prepare the fields and get them dry. 
 

SOFTBALL ASSESSMENTS (Stonehouse Park)

Lucky you, softball times are unchanged! We will keep the following schedule:
 
11am -  6-8 year olds
1pm -  9-12 year olds
 

BASEBALL ASSESSMENTS (Stonehouse Park)

Saturday, January 20 – please arrive 15 minutes early to check in

2:30 – 3:45pm     11 and 12 year-olds

4:00 – 5:30pm     9 and 10 year-olds

We apologize for any confusion and scheduling conflicts this may have caused, but we needed to find the best possible solution and appreciate your flexibility!

WHY A PLAYER ASSESSMENT?

The purpose of player assessments is to evaluate players so that

  1. Children are selected into an appropriate level of play, and
  2. CRLL can best maintain the safety of all players.

We strive to have children with their peers and play among children with similar ability. Managers at each level assess the children and ultimately have discretion for selecting players onto their teams.

 

PLAYER ASSESSMENT PROCESS

For both baseball and softball, each player will have the opportunity to throw, catch (infield and outfield), run, and hit. The format will be slightly different this year, and will include a warm-up. Please arrive about 15 minutes prior to your assessment time to check in.

 

WHO PARTICIPATES IN PLAYER ASSESSMENTS? 

  • BASEBALL players League 8 and older must attend one of our player assessment dates.
  • BASEBALL players who are League Age 7 must attend one player assessment date date in order to play in a “kid pitch” division.
    • If a baseball player league age 7 does not attend a player assessment, he or she will be placed in the A division.
  • BASEBALL players who are League Age 6 or younger do not go to player assessments, and will not play in a kid pitch division.

 

  • SOFTBALL players League Age 7 and up must attend a player assessment.
  • If a Softball player is League Age 6, and they have already played a year of Tball, they can be evaluated for placement on a Softball Farm team.
  • Softball players League Age 5 and younger will play Tball.
